Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"A micro server (may also be written as microserver or
MicroServer) is a small server appliance that works like a server.
Micro servers are off-the-shelf appliances that are designed for
ease of installation and maintenance. A micro server will come with
the operating system, hardware and software preinstalled and
configured by the manufacturer. Some configuration functions of the
micro server may be performed by the end-user through a touch panel
and access to the server appliance is through a Web browser.
"A micro server is a popular choice for small- to medium-sized
businesses that need a server but do not need a full-scale rack or
tower server. Micro servers are also used by corporations that
operate with minimal IT staff at local or branch offices.
"A micro server may also be called a server appliance."
